PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Wing conducted multiple F-15 Memorial Day flyovers across Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington Monday.

During the flybys, the F-15 Eagle fighter jets zipped 1,000 feet overhead at 400 mph. Commander of the 142nd Wing Col. Todd Hofford called the flyovers a tribute to America’s fallen veterans.
